It's Christmas Time!

Hello everyone,

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. It snowed here just slightly - just enough to be pretty and to make me wish for a white Christmas. I had Christmas on the brain because we are getting our tree tomorrow and also because I have been busy making Christmas creations. Wanted to show this this card I made that meets the criteria for 2 challenges. One is by Crafty Creations and the other is by Creative Inspirations. Both of these blogs are new to me, and I was really impressed by both! So here is the Christmas card and matching tag I made, which is what Creative Inspirations wanted this time.

I took a pic of the back of the tag too, which also matches.

The card also meets the criteria for Crafty Creations.

They wanted to see lace and distressing for their card

challenge this week. You can see the green lace on the left

side of the card. I distressed the edges of all the pp and cs

with my CTMH edge distressor and lots of inking. I did the

same for the tag, too. The Christmas tree stamp is from
Inkadinkado. To get the color I wanted,
I had to stamp it with clear embossing ink, and then used green embossing powder which I heat set. I colored in the garland with gold Smooch, and used a couple of shades of Copics for the red decorations. I also used a white pen to highlight the garland and throughout the tree, because it just looked too solid. The star on top was made with gold Stickles. The pp I used is Graphic 45, Webster's Pages (creme color), and My Little Yellow Bicycle (green).
The little stockings were in my stash. I was pretty happy with how this set turned out! Hope you like it too.

Thanks for looking and have a blessed weekend!
